This place is in a perfect location. A room with the lake views is well worth the extra. Lovely friendly staff. We have stayed there twice and will do so again, for short visits. Handy to all amenities, we didn't use our car once.

I liked it as a place to stay after the half marathon. Close enough to be able to walk to and from the venue and close enough to the city centre where the restaurants are located. Great view from the room looking up the lake.

Beautifully located overlooking the lake and very nicely appointed in the room but….. One expects Wifi in the room these days and when told that if the signal was not good enough I could use my tablet in reception I was very disappointed. There was a very limited choice of TV channels and limited choice of tea and coffee. The...

This is why the next time I am in Queenstown, I'll be staying at the Earnslaw. Again. It's not the view, which was stunning. It's not the room, which was clean, modern, and well appointed. It was the service. Lynley bent over backwards to make sure our two day was memorable, to say the least. Want to take a helicopter...

We had a whirlwind trip of New Zealand starting from Auckland to Rotorua followed by Christchurch, Mount Cook, Queenstown and Milford Sound within the short span of a week. During our 2 nights stay at the beautiful foothill town of Queenstown, we stayed in Earnslaw Lodge. The lodge has both lake facing and non-lake facing rooms. The lake facing rooms...

It's not the most glamorous place in Queenstown, but the views are perfect, it was clean and very well kept, and most importantly the people were wonderful. Free toys and highchair for our baby without even asking, parking at the front and help with planning our stay. An excellent choice, we'll definitely be going back!

I stayed in this accommodation for a holiday and really enjoyed the location. It is very close to the downtown and the lake scenary is stunning. I will recommend this lodge to anyone planning a Queestown visit.
